MAGIC HISTORY
WILLARD THE WIZARD
Willard The Wizard Window Card

Willard The Wizard Window CardHarry Francis Willard (December 12, 1895 - June 28, 1970) who performed under the name Willard The Wizard was one of the best magicians of the twentieth century. He did not get a worldwide reputation like his contemporaries because he spent most of his career on the road, in the Texas area, with his full evening outdoor show commonly referred to as a "tent show."

This is an original window card that was used to promote the show. It features a large photo of Harry Willard and the following captions: "Original Willard The Wizard and Company -- The Most Delightful Mystic of all times -- On stage Harry Willard in person."

The 14x22 inch, two-color poster is printed on heavy cardboard and has room at the top for the show information to be printed or written. This is an original.
